The Village of New Hyde Park held off on its decision regarding the possible reopening of the Angry Gnome Pub. New Hyde Park resident John Murnane is looking to reestablish the bar and its two upstairs apartments at 1217 Jericho Tpke.
The pub was devastated because of Hurricane Sandy two years ago. According to village officials, tenants were using “alternative means of heat and air conditioning” which caused a fire in October 2012 after the storm, resulting in two deaths.
“It’s a neighborhood bar,” said Murnane. “It’s been a fixture in New Hyde Park for a long time.”
